Hi, my name is Tim and I grew up racing motocross on ATVs and later got into desert racing/riding and heavy into mountain bikes. My latest injury was a rotator cuff tear that has my shoulder messed up pretty bad so I have to put my love for the dirt and anything off road on the backburner, I'm 42 now and simply don't bounce off the ground like I used to!
I live in Southern California and have always wanted a boat. My search was pretty intense and I must have logged 1,000 miles on my truck in search of the boat for me, hated the drives back home after viewing a boat that simply wasn't as advertised, one guy even gave me $20 for gas! Hahaha... I had my budget set and finally stumbled across this 2000 Maxum 2100 bow rider that was just brought from Kansas to Ca. The seller was pretty desperate to sell, original listing was 10k, he had a lot of low ball offers coming in and when I went to take a look I brought cash and after pointing out a few minor flaws I was pulling it home after handing him $7,500!
I bought the boat with the local lakes in mind but I live 10 minutes from a launch ramp in Long Beach Ca. so my first 2 outings have been in the ocean, THIS BOAT KICKS ASS!!!
The interior is in almost like new condition with the only minor flaw on the drivers seat from driving with a knee on the seat I believe!? Kick ass sound system with 4 speakers a sub woofer and amp. The boat stayed covered its entire life and it literally ate me alive when I was checking out other boats and a simple cover would have made a world of difference! I know the salt water is brutal and the cleaning/maintenance will be intense but how could I resist, too many nice restaurants/bars to not hit the marina!
Trailer- tandem, bearings brakes being serviced
Engine- 5.0L starts right up, oil will be changed soon with a new fuel filter. Prop is beat and will soon be replaced.
Gauges- speedo not working, trim gauge stopped working after 1st outing. (help)
Exterior- needs good polishing but not bad, some of the rubber was coming out of track but a few small flat screwdrivers fixed that!
Any suggestions on keeping this thing in good shape would be greatly appreciated!
I will leave this here in case any lurkers with the same boat want a good read!http://www.seamag.com/Archive/Day-Runner
